On-Campus Notification

Campus community notifications related to safety and/or security issues on campus or in the surrounding community are done in two ways.

  • For low level or informative notifications, CalArts uses the campus-wide e-mail sent to individuals assigned a calarts.edu e-mail address. Staff, Faculty and Students will receive an e-mail describing the issue and appropriate actions to take.
  • In the case of an emergency, all Staff/Faculty/Students that have signed up for the LiveSafe text alert system will be sent a text to their designated contact number. The text will state the emergency and any actions to be taken. 
    • Students who wish to add emergency information should go to the Registrar’s office to request any edits to their profile. 
    • Faculty, staff and students can update their contact information by filling out the form.

Mass Emergency Notification

Campus Safety administers the Institute’s mass emergency notification system. Students, faculty and staff can register to receive notifications of emergency events. These messages are only transmitted during emergencies and are an additional avenue of communication. The Chief Financial Officer and Associate V.P. of Facilities and Administration, or designee, will make the decision of whether to issue a timely campus safety/crime warning or emergency notification on a case-by-case basis considering the facts surrounding the incident, nature of the incident, continuing danger to the campus community, and the possible risk of compromising law enforcement efforts.
